Santorum Won’t Correct Woman Who Called President Obama a Muslim

Rick Santorum doesn't feel he has to correct anyone that falsely called the President of being a Muslim. Today, at a town hall event in Lady Lake, Florida, Santorum was questioned on Obama's religion. Here's the actual quote via cnn.com:

"I never refer to Obama as President Obama because legally he is not," the woman in the audience began. "He constantly says that our constitution is passé, and he ignores it as you know and does what he darn well pleases. He is an avowed Muslim and my question is, why isn't something being done to get him out of government? He has no legal right to be calling himself president?"

Santorum never corrected the woman. Instead, he went on to say,

"Well look, I'm doing my best to get him out of the government right now, and you're right about how he uniformly ignores the constitution. He did this with these appointments over the recess that was not a recess, and if I was in the United States Senate I would be drawing the line."

When Santorum was asked  by CNN's John King why he never corrected the woman on Obama's religion, he went on to state the following:

"I don't feel it's my obligation every time someone says something I don't agree with to contradict them, and the President's a big boy, he can defend himself and his record and I'm going to go out and talk about the issues that the President and I disagree on and try to defeat him because I think that's the best thing that we can do for the future of our country."

It seems there are still people in this country who will believe Obama is everything but an American Christian. Consider Santorum's campaign over, even Ann Coulter knows Republicans won't win with radical false statements.
